Thread Lifting is the latest technology to help with facial retightening. It is a form of non-surgical facial rejuvenation. This treatment helps to create desired facial contour and lift through the action of resorbable sutures.
A tiny notch will be made behind the ear or behind the hairline and then fine threads are then advanced along pre-marked contours. These threads have fine filaments that become fixed to the tissue and are then gently smoothed down. Your body then starts to produce new bundles of collagen which surround each filament and this in turn creates a subtle yet effective lift. The results differ for each person, but look very natural giving a rejuvenated and refreshed look. There is no scarring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery.
A Thread Lift procedure is suited to those that wish to lift and redefine the contours of their jawline, cheeks, malar, eyebrows and neck. A Thread Lift procedure helps to tighten and lift areas that have been affected by the laws of age and gravity. It is a suitable and viable option for those in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s looking to slow down the ageing process. A Thread Lift procedure may not be suitable for those with excessive skin laxity or extensive ageing of the face and neck.
The thread lift can be used to enhance and improve the appearance of a sagging neck, sagging cheeks and jowls and droopy eyebrows. You can personalise your procedure to suit your exact needs and Dr Manoj Agarwala will also make recommendations for improvements. The procedure can be tailored to suit your exact needs to ensure you are totally happy with the results.
A typical thread lift takes as little as one hour to perform, but the length will depend on the number of filaments your doctor uses and the areas being treated.
The great thing about a thread lift is that it offers quick recovery together with excellent results. Local anaesthetic is all that is required and there is no hospital stay required. Another good factor about the thread lift is that it is much more affordable than a regular face lift and the results are long lasting. If you are looking for a quick and effective solution to a range of aging problems then a thread lift is the perfect solution.
You may experience side effects including: bruising, swelling, redness, slight pulling or mild pucker of the skin where the thread is placed, this is normal and will subside within 2 weeks.
A Thread Lift is a non-invasive treatment, once the suture (thread) is injected into the face the thread is broken down and absorbed into the skin over time, living behind a seamless tightened finish.
A thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. The results last for anything between 3 and 4 years. To extend the results it is possible to have additional filaments inserted and your doctor can advise you when this is required.
